The Ontario Government is celebrating International Small Business Week with the launch of the “Shop Local! Shop Safe! Shop with Confidence!” campaign, encouraging Ontarians to support their local small businesses and to shop safely while doing so.
The campaign, supported by RCC, will help retailers – the province’s largest private-sector employer – promote safety for consumers and workplaces, while continuing to help to build strong and vibrant communities. The province, in partnership with various health and safety organizations, has also released sector-specific guidelines in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. These documents help workplaces better understand their responsibilities and include best practices that can be used to comply with legal obligations and protect the health and safety of workers.
